President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence attend opening day of the Republican National Convention at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, N.C., Monday, Aug. 24, 2020. Various appearances at the Republican National Convention will be a radical break from tradition even for an administration that has repeatedly shattered norms.

WASHINGTON - Republicans predicted a national "horror movie" should President Donald Trump lose in November, flinging out dark warnings on Monday's opening night of their scaled down national convention.

Trump's campaign had promised to offer an inclusive and uplifting prime-time message, hoping to broaden his appeal beyond his hard-core base by featuring the next generation of party stars including two Republicans of color, Rep. Tim Scott and former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley. Yet efforts to strike an optimistic tone were frequently overshadowed by dire talk that Democrat Joe Biden would destroy America, allowing communities to be overrun by violence.

Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida likened the prospect of Biden's election to a horror movie.
